That's terrible! Hit and run capitol for sure but I'd include peds and other autos as well. Too many people just don't care anymore. I've stopped at flashing red bus lights, crosswalks for peds and see other drives blow by. Hell, won't even slow down for children. One that blew by a red light bus was a Omni Trans bus driver. If I had been able to catchup after the stop, I would have gottena bus # and reported him.
We used to ride across PCH to Seal beach from SART. Gina was well within the bike lane when a big motor home flew by missing her by a foot. That's quite a sight to see, your wife nearly taken out by a huge RV. No more streets for Gina other than low traffic mtn roads. All it takes is one time and people don't care enough to pay attention anymore. Even if they hit you, too many aren't stopping anymore!
I don 't believe I have ever felt worse for a cyclist than I do for this man. Other stories indicate that he got hit on Zoo Drive at the 5 freeway, I have cycled past that spot hundreds of times. The manner in which this took place is despicable. Anybody aware of where he is hospitalized?
